The article is a review of modern publications covering the issues of adrenal insufficiency in patients in the periopreparative period. The article covers the issues of epidemiology, etiology and pathogenesis, presents algorithms for examining patients with adrenal insufficiency. Topical issues such as the perioperative management of patients receiving steroid hormone replacement therapy, depending on the incidence of the operation and the problems of the hypoadrenal crisis are considered.

We have studied the effectiveness of dexketoprofen for preemptive analgesia in patients with a fracture of the hip after combined trauma during femoral osteosynthesis. We examined 120 patients of both sex. The patients were divided into 2 groups of 60 people depending on the use of preemptive analgesia. After that the group of 60 persons were divided into groups of 20 patients, depending on the type of anesthesia. Group 1A — inhalation anesthesia (IA). Group 1B — regional anesthesia (RA). Group 1С — total intravenous anesthesia (TIA). Group 2A — inhalation anesthesia (IA) and preemptive analgesia with dexketoprofen. Group 2B — regional anesthesia (RA) and preemptive analgesia with dexketoprofen. Group 2С — total intravenous anesthesia (TIA) and preemptive analgesia with dexketoprofen. All patients were provided with blocked intramedullary femoral osteosynthesis in 3–5 days after the trauma. Postoperative analgesia was provided with tramadol and trimeperidine. The study consisted of the following steps: 1st — before the surgery, 2nd — at the beginning of the operation, 3rd — after the transfer to the hospital ward, 4th — 24 hours after the surgery. We studied pain expression using the visual analog scale, hemodynamics, blood cortisol levels. After using dexketoprofen all patients had a more favorable pain severity dynamics, less blood cortisol levels, less blood pressure and heart rate in the early postoperative period.

Chronic congenital and acquired diseases of the central nervous system are a heterogeneous group of diseases, the etiology and pathogenesis of which is quite diverse and associated with the damage to the brain and spinal cord. Such diseases include the consequences of acute cerebral circulation disorders, intracranial hypertension, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, the consequences of poliomyelitis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, syringomyelia, the consequences of spinal cord injury. The review presents approaches to preoperative assessment and preparation, the choice of anesthesia and anesthetics, and the tactics of myoplegia in patients with the diseases of the central nervous system.

Perioperative management of patients with valvular heart disease is a serious problem, considering different hemodynamic changes depend on lesion of valves. Features of clinical and instrumental preoperative assessment of those patients reviewed. Recommendations on thrombosis prophylaxis, infectious endocarditis, intraoperative monitoring are given. Details on perioperative management of different frequent valvular diseases was described, include preoperative preparation, main anesthesia goals, choice of optimal anesthesia technique and drug.

Keywords: valvular heart disease, perioperative management, anesthesia

The article describes the history of a heart transplant, focusing on anesthesia and resuscitation aspects of the procedure. Considered in detail the various stages of the development of this operation for over a hundred years. Scientific and practical process of development of heart transplantation presented in detail in the so-called pre-clinic period and during the implementation of this operation in the daily work of the cardio-surgical centers. The article made it possible to convey the drama and intensity of emotional inherent in the initial series of heart transplants in the clinic (until 1970). Through close contact with colleagues, the authors were able to promulgate the little known but extremely important facts and events in the history of the heart transplantation, called undeservedly forgotten names of anaestesiologists, intensivists, perfusionists, ensure the formation of cardiac transplantology in the world and in Russia.

Nowadays obesity is a worldwide problem. Changes associated with the obesity commonly increase risks of perioperative complications that could be fatal. The increasing of fat tissue influences significantly on pharmacokinetic of intravenous drugs, nevertheless effects of inhaled anesthetics remain more predictable. Structural changes of upper airways, sleep apnea obstructive syndrome, cervical osteochondrosis reduce visualization in direct laryngoscopy. Frequency of difficult tracheal intubation in patients with body weight index more than 40 kg/m2 reaches 13–24 %. In some cases awake tracheal intubation is necessary, that changes a traditional induction plan. Morbid obesity patients have often cardiovascular diseases, respiratory system disorders and increased intra-abdominal pressure, therefore they need a differentiated approach for ventilation strategy for safe anesthesia. Knowledge of the pathophysiology of these changes allows to take measures to prevent serious complications. Nowadays in the general surgery department of the Saint-Petersburg City Hospital № 40 we perform two types of bariatric operations: sleeve — resection and gastric-bypass. In this article we have presented our experience of perioperative management of morbid obese patient for bariatric surgery.

The need for surgical treatment in elderly patients arises four times more often than the population average. Due to the tendency to increase life expectancy, the number of elderly patients who underwent surgery increases, which requires an increase in the geriatric care, including surgical and anesthetic care. It is well known that in comparison with young patients, older subjects have a higher risk of developing adverse postoperative outcomes as a result of age-related decline in physiological functions, the presence of several comorbidities, polypharmacy, cognitive dysfunction and specific geriatric syndromes such as frailty. The presented recommendations generalize modern principles of perioperative management in patients of older age groups. Particular attention is paid to the peculiarities of preoperative examination, including the evaluation of geriatric syndromes, the choice of anesthesia method and the correct calculation of doses of drugs for anesthesia. Great importance at the present time made the role of cognitive status of older patients and post-operative cognitive dysfunction, which substantially affects the outcome of the disease. These recommendations include measures to assess cognitive status and prevent complications associated with cognitive impairment. Individualization of approach to management of geriatric patients is the basis of effective prevention of perioperative complications.

Can we use TAP-block as a method of anesthesia during surgery, and if so, when? The number of patients with severe concomitant pathology is increasing every year. Such patients long-term taking a number of medications, including anticoagulants, which are limited the use of neuroaxial anesthesia techniques. Blockade of peripheral nerves under ultrasound guidance is a relatively safe method of pain relief that is gaining popularity. This article describes a clinical case of the use of TAP-block during hernia repair to the patient with severe cardiovascular pathology, in which general or spinal anesthesia could be associated with high risk of complications both during operation and in early postoperative period.

Keywords: TAP-block, anesthesia, hernia repair
